Your Escape at Our Place !



The Pines, Northwest Bay     


About Us

Sheila, Stewart and Kathy will be happy to welcome you to The Pines as part of a family style business interest. Our aim is for you to enjoy what this special environment has to offer.

Sheila, the owner of “Beech House” as we call it, spends many months away overseas and has first hand experience of what accommodation can offer all over the world. Beech House is not intended to be a commercial entity, but a homely place for rest, relaxation and fun…. Or more particularly whatever You want it to be! “I want to offer something for Kiwis, by Kiwis with a chance to experience my patch of paradise.”

Stewart, “The Fixer”, but more probably the character of the Bay, - is the engine that keeps everything going. His variety of skill from building to mechanics, chef to barman, sailor to fisherman ensure that The Pines is a functional and comfortable place to be. Stewart is normally the meet and greet man.

Kathy has a wealth of experience in the hospitality business in UK and NZ. If Stewart is the engine then Kathy is the spark that keeps it firing, ensuring The Pines is always a home away from home. Kathy enjoys a quiet, but busy retirement while adding the homely domesticity to everything we do.

We try to preserve and maintain the ecological environment, while making constructive use of what nature has to offer. We hope you have the chance to “escape” for a while with us and we will ensure your escape will be pleasant and comfortable while at our place.
